    Of course he beat me, but it took him until third gear to do so :mamoru:

    I think he should have been faster but was not expecting the mad fury of the Mini's blower :eek3:

    Third gear is top end?

    I think it's something maybe to do with turbo lag and torque :hsugh:

    And also him realizing I was pulling on him :mamoru:

    That's kind of the point of the :mamoru:

    I think he expected to walk me. I was doing the old "pretend not to look" trick :mamoru: and was on it as soon as the light turned. I assume he was just going to impress his 17 year old GF and didn't expect me to actually push it.

    Anyway, STi > Mini, but the mileage is just too shitty for my long drive :hs:

    You read well :hsugh:

    You also missed where I handily beat a Cobra from a rolling start and where I did wheelstands up and down my driveway.

    Prince William Parkway just off 95.

    Lots of ricers out this way too. I did 2nd gear screaming drive by of a whole line of new Si's and a couple E46s Sunday up on Rte 28 (they were in a turning lane) and then as I laughed myself to a stop in my lane realized I was behind an unmarked state trooper :hsugh:

    But he saw the line of ricers and pulled an "illegal" turn to follow them :mamoru:
